The car is up on eBay with no luck yet. I'm truly shocked.
Regarding the hood, here's a picture of it. I'm not sure why I missed it before.

Don't be amazed, eBay tends to draw lookie-loo's like anywhere else. I had a pristine Volvo 240 listed and after 2200 views, 40 some watchers and well into day 6 of a 7 day listing I got a very acceptable offer. My Jaguar was the same thing...... plenty of lookers, comments, questions, etc... then bingo. In my opinion, based on experience, if you have excellent feedback, a quality listing and a decent price, it'll sell best with a fixed price and best offer option listing.

Best of luck!

Ok, yeah......... I just took a look at your eBay listing.....

Only a (2) feedback rating, one being a very recent negative car sale, poor listing content [can't even read that small, highlighted colored text] and bad pictures = no sale at any price.

Start a new account, you'll never be trusted with that feedback regardless if right or wrong

Use a bigger, bold font format with a detailed description

Take photos of the car in a nice location, not where it looks like a used car lot where there a cars, trailers, signs etc... in he background

Clean it up, drive it to a nice area with a decent background.

Just trying to help. That car should have sold in less than a week.

I agree with somebeach regarding your ebay account and your ad. The ad, particularly the text, doesn't look good. But your account history kills anything right away.

I don't agree with somebeach about this selling in less than a week. I think the chance of selling is far greater on the forum(s) than on ebay for this niche vehicle.

I appreciate the feedback on the eBay listing. It's not my account, I exhausted all of my free listings over the past year, and decided to ask a friend to post it for me. I will relist it on my account which has 100+ feedbacks at a 100% positive rate.
Thank you for all the feedback!
